Purple Jays was conceptualized back in 2013, when friends got together for a jam. We shared a common love for the great music of the yester years. Our love for blues, soul and funk grooves ensued into the music that we would play and eventually, create. The work on the debut album started late 2014, when the band got together to write original music. A year and half later, we proudly claim to have created seven pieces of music, which is reminiscent of the eclectic sound which defines us – Purple Jays!
Our influences range from the great B.B. King to the king of pop Michael Jackson, from the ever so funky Tower of Power to the electrifying Jamiroquai, from disco queen Chaka Khan to the soulful Stevie Wonder!
